a misunderstanding, when I said thank you for your kind offering, (i meant exactally that) I did'nt mean it to seem that I wanted Heyday or that I'd be emailing you for it. I may (but not likely) buy "Things we did on our Holidays", but only for Eastern Rain. After an extensive torrent search, there are many pre-1978 Fairport shows, (dimeadozen) but no live Eastern Rain, maybe it had to do with Joni Mitchell allowing them to perform it.
99.99% of my GD collection is live. I only have 2 studio Dead, lets see....Aoximoxia and Mars Hotel.
Any Fairport? only live baby, live! Yup, in that way, I'm a flawed closed minded snob. Peace

Ok that's cool. It's a great album though. Let me know if you change your mind. FYI - I have one officially release live Fairport CD but without Sandy on it so it's a more raw sound. I respect the hell out of Thompson but don't really dig listening to him that much. Sandy is the main appeal of Fairport to me. Too bad you won't give studio stuff a chance ( but you like what you like and nothing wrong with that of course ). Have you ever heard Aimee Mann? Oh MAN! Strongest female singer songwriter possibly since Joni imo.

love aimee mann totally - but i think sarah mclachlan is stronger (totally disregarding her top 40 stereotype) that woman has soul, lyric, power, and a voice that can bring tears to you eyes.

COOL! I'm glad to hear someone knows her. That Magnolia soundtrack is so good. Have to say I don't any Sara Mclaughlin, just know who she is.

well, there is one sample i can send you - will be a mix of my favorites - just a jaw droppin voice and wonderful lyrics - maybe on the depressing side but the melodies and voice can make your eyes roll up into your head. i love her, even though they play her on top 40 - dont let that skew your thought toward her though - she is well worth a listen if you like the great aimee mann (another wonderful voice - comin up close??? - one of my favorite songs)

speaking of melting voices - Allison Krauss has one of the most beautiful voices I can think of. So distinctive too.

Hey Johnny - hope you don't mind me chipping in here but I have to agree with you about Richard Thompson - I have huge respect for his guitar playing ability - absolutely nobody comes close to doing what he does - and yet I hardly ever choose to listen to his albums these days. He used to get big rotation back in the Richard and Linda days but not so much now. It's funny - by all accounts he's a nice guy (I talked my way backstage to say hi to him after a couple of shows in the seventies and he was very patient and ready to shoot the breeze) but he seems monumentally pissed off with the world in his music. Is the live Fairport album you're talking about the LA one? If so its phenomenal - verges on the anarchic sometimes!

Chip in anytime you want brother, we're all friends here : )

Yes it is the LA one. Good catch! Completely different sound to most of the Fairport I'm used to ( Unhalfbrickening, etc. ).Yeah there are some pretty cool heavy moments on there.

That's cool that Thompson was a cool guy. I always like to hear when Celebs are cool and real instead of all pretentious and rude. For me it's just something about his voice I don't really dig all that much but like I said I respect the hell out of him. He's stayed true as an artist and has influenced MANY people so that says a lot.
